"Doughnut for a Snowman," the latest single from the recently reunited Guided by Voices, is a gentle indie rock ballad grounded in a context that is quite literally sweet. "I married a ridiculous title I had written in a notebook about ten years ago to a jingle conceived for Krispy Kreme doughnuts that I never submitted," says frontman Robert Pollard. "It became about a young female aficionado of Krispy Kreme doughnuts who falls for the neighborhood ice cream man." The song will appear on the band's forthcoming album, Let's Go Eat the Factory, in January, but you can download the track here for free.
